This study explores the impact of Big Data and smart city initiatives on supply chain management. The effects of smart cities and SCM integration on sustainable development are also examined. Big Data, smart cities, and supply chain characteristics have all received a significant amount of attention (supply network structure, governance mechanisms). Based on literature reviews, we created a comprehensive model for supply chains, Big Data, and smart cities. The study concluded that smart cities have various consequences for network architecture and governmental systems. Future research directions in supply chain management and smart cities are also addressed in this paper. A comprehensive model was developed that can be used to undertake empirical research on the implications of smart cities and Big Data on supply chain management and sustainable development in the future. Big Data, smart cities, and supply chains have more than merely causal interactions, and Big Data and smart cities will hugely impact sustainable development and SCM operations. Several studies have recently examined the use of information technology in supply chains, but few have specifically addressed smart cities and Big Data, according to literature analyses.

Blockchain is an emerging technology concept that could be a tool to solve end-to-end integration of material and information flow in supply chain and logistics (SC&L). In this book, you can find three complementary studies on the adoption of Blockchain solutions in SC&L: (1) an analysis of existing use cases in the literature, (2) a 153-response survey outlining expectations for Blockchain in SC&L, and (3) an exploratory, qualitative Grounded Theory study that derives observations on adoption motivations, paths, barriers, and learnings. Blockchain solutions could become a valuable infrastructure tool for SC&L aligning supply chain partners worldwide.
... Thus, while there is no optimal combination, the analysis leans towards shorter return intervals (daily or weekly but not monthly) and longer estimation periods (four or five years of returns). This combination can be very intense on computing time, but is nothing compared to the scale of crypto mining and blockchain authentication (Lei et al. 2021;Verhoeven et al. 2018). Results indicate that the generally witnessed practice of utilizing monthly interval betas (over a 60-month estimation period) to estimate next day or next week portfolio returns, or to control for portfolio risk in a market-neutral setting, may not be optimal and is likely a vestige of legacy issues that are no longer relevant (in an era of cloud computing, high frequency data, machine readable data and AI). ...

The traditional CAPM beta is almost exclusively calculated over a return period that spans a window length of 60-months, at one-month return frequencies. It is one of the most utilized models in the asset management industry to assess systematic risk. Yet there is limited evidence to suggest that these estimation parameters are optimal. Utilizing data between January 2000 and December 2021 for the Russell 1000 index, we test daily, weekly, and monthly beta estimations to calculate tracking errors (TE) for the use of these betas in predicting subsequent performance over daily, weekly, and monthly timeframes. We identify that daily CAPM betas are best for predicting subsequent period daily returns and that weekly CAPM betas are strongly correlated with forward weekly and monthly period returns. Leveraging the significant advances in computing resources and the increasing utilization of high frequency trading strategies, we argue that additional window length and return interval-based CAPM betas should be calculated for estimating the systematic risk embedded in diversified portfolios.

In today’s scenario, blockchain technology is an emerging area and promising technology in the field of the food supply chain industry (FSCI). A literature survey comprising an analytical review of blockchain technology with the Internet of things (IoT) for food supply chain management (FSCM) is presented to better understand the associated research benefits, issues, and challenges. At present, with the concept of farm-to-fork gaining increasing popularity, food safety and quality certification are of critical concern. Blockchain technology provides the traceability of food supply from the source, i.e., the seeding factories, to the customer’s table. The main idea of this paper is to identify blockchain technology with the Internet of things (IoT) devices to investigate the food conditions and various issues faced by transporters while supplying fresh food. Blockchain provides applications such as smart contracts to monitor, observe, and manage all transactions and communications among stakeholders. IoT technology provides approaches for verifying all transactions; these transactions are recorded and then stored in a centralized database system. Thus, IoT enables a safe and cost-effective FSCM system for stakeholders. In this paper, we contribute to the awareness of blockchain applications that are relevant to the food supply chain (FSC), and we present an analysis of the literature on relevant blockchain applications which has been conducted concerning various parameters. The observations in the present survey are also relevant to the application of blockchain technology with IoT in other areas.

The blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) have been the focal point of innovations and received increasing attention of the community over the last years. The blockchain technology is a distributed ledger of reliable digital records that are shared by the participating networks. AI, on the other hand, and its applications have been used for developing futuristic machines that are capable of having human-like intelligence. The use of both technologies in transportation systems has seen a tremendous growth that resulted in transformation of the transportation industry. Various modes of transportation, such as new transit systems, metro rails, high-speed rails, connected and automated vehicles, autonomous trains, and other emerging transportation modes (hyperloop, e-scooters, hoverboards), still face many challenges, including but not limited to economic issues, energy efficiency, social adoption, data privacy, lack of regulatory standards, reliability, security, and ethical issues. The use of blockchain and AI technologies has the potential to fill the technology gaps in transportation systems and effectively address the existing challenges. The convergence of both technologies is likely to yield significant advantages and provide a common distributed platform for data sharing, reliability, and decision-making. The present study is focused on understanding both technologies and their convergence in various industrial domains with a specific emphasis on transportation systems. A detailed state-of-the-art review of the relevant literature is performed to identify the main advantages and challenges in the applications of blockchain and AI in transportation systems and other related domains along with the ways to overcome these challenges. This study also reveals some critical future research needs for successful development and implementation of these technologies in transportation systems.

Healthcare, one of the most important industries, is data-oriented, but most of the research in this industry focuses on incorporating the internet of things (IoT) or connecting medical equipment. Very few researchers are looking at the data generated in the healthcare industry. Data are very important tools in this competitive world, as they can be integrated with artificial intelligence (AI) to promote sustainability. Healthcare data include the health records of patients, drug-related data, clinical trials data, data from various medical equipment, etc. Most of the data management processes are manual, time-consuming, and error-prone. Even then, different healthcare industries do not trust each other to share and collaborate on data. Distributed ledger technology is being used for innovations in different sectors including healthcare. This technology can be incorporated to maintain and exchange data between different healthcare organizations, such as hospitals, insurance companies, laboratories, pharmacies, etc. Various attributes of this technology, such as its immutability, transparency, provenance etc., can bring trust and security to the domain of the healthcare sector. In this paper, a decentralized access control model is proposed to enable the secure interoperability of different healthcare organizations. This model uses the Ethereum blockchain for its implementation. This model interfaces patients, doctors, chemists, and insurance companies, empowering the consistent and secure exchange of data. The major concerns are maintaining a history of the transactions and avoiding unauthorized updates in health records. Any transaction that changes the state of the data is reflected in the distributed ledger and can be easily traced with this model. Only authorized entities can access their respective data. Even the administrator will not be able to modify any medical records.

Currently, the emerging countries like Morocco seeks to benefit from the potential of blockchain technology to meet its various growing demands, especially in sustainable supply chain management (SSCM). This explains the need for more effort to understand blockchain implementation and identify the barriers influencing the blockchain adoption decision in SSCM, especially, from Moroccan industry and service sectors perspective. In this context, this research paper proposes a group decision-making approach to identify the barriers from a comprehensive literature search, then evaluate them based on intuitionistic fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (IFAHP). Due to the varied importance of the selected barriers, IFAHP is utilized to allocate priority weights for each barrier according to its importance level. The evaluation results reveal that “Government policy and support” and “Challenges in integrating sustainable practices and blockchain technology through sustainable supply chain management (SCM)” are the best ranked barriers that impact the implementation of blockchain technology in Moroccan context. The main objective is to inquire the barriers preventing the blockchain implementation, and assist industry decision-makers in developing supple short- and long-term decision-making strategies for better sustainable supply chain management.</span

Organizations adopt blockchain technologies to provide solutions that deliver transparency, traceability, trust, and security to their stakeholders. In a novel contribution to the literature, this study adopts the technology-organization-environment (TOE) framework to examine the technological, organizational, and environmental dimensions for adopting blockchain technology in supply chains. This represents a departure from prior studies which have adopted the technology acceptance model (TAM), technology readiness index (TRI), theory of planned behavior (TPB), united theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) models. Data was collected through a survey of 525 supply chain management professionals in India. The research model was tested using structural equation modeling. The results show that all the eleven TOE constructs, including relative advantage, trust, compatibility, security, firm’s IT resources, higher authority support, firm size, monetary resources, rivalry pressure, business partner pressure, and regulatory pressure, had a significant influence on the decision of blockchain technology adoption in Indian supply chains. The findings of this study reveal that the role of blockchain technology adoption in supply chains may significantly improve firm performance improving transparency, trust and security for stakeholders within the supply chain. Further, this research framework contributes to the theoretical advancement of the existing body of knowledge in blockchain technology adoption studies.
... While each "block" stores a measurable process and dataset, the chain links the blocks in a certain order. The current data set is determined by tracking the chain from the first block to the last block and re-analysing the process in each block (Verhoeven et al., 2018). As a result, the blockchain can not only keep track of the current data set, but also an entire transaction history. ...

The aim of this study is to determine the factors that affect the adoption of blockchain technology by the companies in the industries such as raw material, transportation, healthcare, food, financial and to propose a comprehensive model explaining adoption behavior in the supply chain context. Supply chain, blockchain, information systems, and logistics literature have been extensively examined to create the associated model. Accordingly, the concept of inter-firm acceptance faced by researchers was accepted as a differentiating point and related constructs and the model were designed specifically for blockchain technology. A comprehensive literature review showed that there is a very limited number of studies on the acceptance of blockchain technologies by companies. The model created consists of 4 main determinants and 10 related attributes. In this context, inter-organizational factors such as power and trust of chain stakeholders and readiness for technology as organizational factor were analyzed within the integration of relative advantage, transparency, and cost as main characteristics of the technology. This model provides an important and unique perspective for practitioners and the academic studies to be carried out.
... There is a lack of use cases evaluating the effects of introducing BCT (Holotiuk et al., 2018;Liu et al., 2020;Stranieri et al., 2021), especially regarding customer experience (Boukis, 2019;Gielens and Steenkamp, 2019;Kamilaris et al., 2019;Scholz and Duffy, 2018). It is worth noting that most stakeholders are not ready for a paradigm shift towards BCT because of a lack of awareness and of knowledge about BCT and its value for all ASC participants and customers (Ge et al., 2017;Kamath, 2018;Liu et al., 2020;Stranieri et al., 2021;Verhoeven et al., 2018). There is also widespread scepticism among ASCs actors about adopting BCT: in fact, many supply chain actors still rely on paper-based processes. ...

This paper explores how Blockchain technology (BCT) can be integrated in the agri-food supply chain (ASC) and how BCT-based networks are formed. To do this, the paper describes a BCT solution, designed to enhance traceability, and analyses its adoption in two small firms. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach and the Actor-Network Theory (ANT), the findings have revealed that BCT improves how data is collected and has changed how firms interact with stakeholders and customers. Firms have enhanced their reputations and started targeting new domestic and international markets. Technical and economic challenges were found when persuading actors to participate in the BCT-based network.
